Tait has his own shelf in the living room now...I got tired of him pulling off all of our books on the bottom shelf so I decided to put some of his books there (only the hardback ones since the others would be ripped up!) He already messed it up as you can see in the picture :)

October 22, 2009

so we are starting to work on more table foods. I cooked some peas and carrots (perfect because they were already cut into little tiny cubes, perfect for him to pick up!)
Well..when he doesn't like something he pushes the food out with his tongue...see the pea on his shirt?

October 21 , 2009

Today I ended up having the day off from babysitting and it happened to be Justin's day off (so nice!) so we went out, had some lunch, and went to a couple stores. We stopped in at Tuesday Morning and Stein Mart..both stores we hadn't been in before..I wasn't too impressed with Tuesday morning (the store just looked junky) but I did buy these 3 scrapbooking items..the best deal were the pack of rubons..reg. 9.99 I payed 1.99! I payed 4 for these 3 items! YEAH!

This picture has a long story..sorry!
Tonight Justin and I attended his company Manager appreciation banquet. It was at the Marriot downtown Indy. Lots of fun. They did a pretty good at showing their managers a good time. ( Last year wasn't as fun because the game they played the managers had to answer questions pertaining to work...not much fun :) the game was "are you smarter than your area director"
Anyway..they have a catered dinner, awards ceremony, (plaques w/ cash awards...good cash rewards too..manager of the year got $1500! then they played a game with which you could win prizes and or money...the theme this year was Let's make a Deal! Everyone was given a ticket with a number on it..if your number was called you go up on the stage and get to pick a box or spin the money wheel...Guess who's number was the very first one
I picked a box..of course if you have seen Let's Make a Deal on the game show network you know that your prize could be something ridiculous, like a baby elephant or something..Well I won a dirty sock..yeah me! I should have picked the wheel! Chad, one of the managers, won $300 from the wheel!
Anyway..Justin happened to be the last contestant chosen..he chose the last box and won a pair of tickets to the IU vs Purdue football game plus passes to the hospitality tent. He is going to take my brother to the game so that will be a fun day for them! (btw some of the other good prizes behind the boxes were a Wii, Ipod, Digital camera, and other football/basketball tickets )
I think the company does a good job about keeping their managers happy. I am looking forward to the Children's Christmas party since we will get to go this year! The owner of the restaurant's franchise buys each manager's child a present (of our choice within a certain price range) and they have a party..last year they rented out Great Times.

Our church has a project they are doing for Thanksgiving. Feeding 500 families. Each person/family that wanted to help paid $15 and received this tub and a list of foods to buy for a Thanksgiving meal. The $15 buys the turkey. I am wanting to start doing more things like this to help teach Tait that we are to help others.
